The latest polls show the potential for a “blue wave” of Democratic Party victories this fall. Conventional wisdom holds that the Democrats will win back control of the U.S. House and possibly the U.S. Senate, even though they have to defend 25 seats compared to only eight for the Republicans.
Louisiana Congressman, Steve Scalisse for US Congress's Speaker of the House of Representatives? Is that a possibility? As of this morning, what was once a rumor is now a serious discusson since current speaker Paul Ryan has decided not to run for re-election this fall, leaving a leadership vacuum.
So, as Jim Brown and Christopher Tidmore and I were readying to discuss the Louisiana legislative session via Bayoubuzz’s Facebook, Twitter, Youtube LIVE, this morning, opportunity suddenly arose to shift gears and focus upon the “hot” and significant national news that could have a huge local impact.
It’s time to calm down.
The feds engaged in an extraordinary step in getting a warrant to obtain important records belonging to Michael Cohen, Donald Trump’s attorney. The reason presented in the media so far is there claim that the documents are related to a potential crime associated with the Stormy Daniels case.
In his first 15 months, President Donald Trump has fired more administration officials than many Presidents do in an entire term. At this point, it is essential that he use his Celebrity Apprentice tagline “You’re Fired,” for three more Department of Justice officials: Special Counsel Robert Mueller, “The Jackal,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions “The Weasel,” and, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein “The Snake.”
From a pure theoretical economic standpoint, which states would be hurt by a trade war?
If you looked only at two numbers, GDP and percentage of the GDP, two states, very important to the political future of Donald Trump and the Republican Party, are Michigan and Louisiana.
At the Simmons College leadership conference in Boston on Thursday, former first lady Michelle Obama praised her husband’s presidency while taking a veiled swipe at President Trump. She said that her husband’s administration was “like having the good parent at home.” In Michelle Obama’s warped view, her husband filled the national role of a “responsible parent, the one who told you to eat your carrots and go to bed on time.”
Thank God we don’t have to talk about Stormy Daniels this week, and how her lawyer bushwhacked the president’s posse. There’s something new for a change. It’s called semantics, as in the difference between “subject” and “target.” Donald Trump, the special counsel informs, is the subject of an investigation, but not its target. It’s a wonderful revelation because it has something for everyone.
The Trump hating media has found a new obsession and her name is Stormy Daniels. The porn star is alleging a 2006 one-night stand with President Trump and the media cannot get enough of this story. In recent weeks, Daniels has been the focus of countless CNN and MSNBC segments. Her interview with Anderson Cooper on 60 Minutes was hyped for weeks, leading to a massive audience of 22 million viewers for the show. This was biggest audience for 60 Minutes in the last ten years.
Remember when we were looking at the possible candidacy of Stormy Daniels for the position of United States Senate from this great state of Louisiana? Apparently, many of us do recall. Yet, as Daniels is becoming a well-known face, body and name, there appears to be those who are just discovering that she once flirted with running for that top national office.
In the past week, I've received two phone calls from major International media outlets who somehow came across my name in association with statements I wrote or said back when Daniels was being discussed as an opponent against David Vitter. The gist of the media’s curiosity appears to be--was she really running for US Senate? If so, why? What was she like?
